“Humphrey is a 3 year old male guinea pig,” according to Ms. Katie Nagy, Humane Educator at the Montgomery County SPCA.
According to Ms. Nagy, Humphrey is described in his SPCA file as “reportedly good with children and was surrendered because his owners did not have enough time for his care.”
“Guinea pigs make wonderful pets and are especially good as first pet for children,” stated Ms. Nagy.
